21 Successful Reality TV Stars

Posted by PZ on September 10th, 2010

Here is a look at 21 reality stars who have gone on to be more successful than the average reality star. Some stars have launched books, fitness dvds or perfumes, while others have had their own spin-off reality show, or have found success down another route. These are the stars who have managed to prolong their 5 minutes of fame, simply because we can’t get enough of them, or because they’re talented individuals, such as some of the winners of American Idol, who have plotted their career perfectly.

44445, SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NEW JERSEY - Saturday September 4 2010. Snooki and Deena bid farewell to the Jersey Shore house as they pack their bags and leave to avoid Hurricane Earl. Snooki found a novel way to get her bags down the stairs, kicking them from the top step! Snooki even took her dancing pole, cuddly toys and a furry crocodile. At one point, Snooki collapsed in a fit of giggles, lying on top of all her luggage. The girls struggled to get their bags into Snooki's BMW with Snooki having to push her seat forward to fit everything in! Photograph: Wagner Az, PacificCoastNews.com
